No. This is not possible in current Mailman.

You might want to look at the "sibling lists" feature in Mailman 2.1.10
and up. You could add the -discuss list to the regular_include_lists
attribute of the -announce list. This would send a copy of any
-announce post to all the -announce members with delivery enabled plus
any delivery enabled regular members of the -discuss list who were not
regular members of the -announce list.

The potential issues that I see are:

A regular member of the -discuss list who is a digest member of the
-announce list will receive the individual message and also receive it
in the digest.

Digest members of the -discuss list will not receive the message unless
they are also members of the -announce list.
